How to Make Perfect Cupcakes Every Time

I wrote previously about how I was determined to practice cupcake making in time for Little Man’s Birthday and now that has been and gone I thought I would write about how the cupcake practice went. I tried a few recipes in my search for the perfect cupcake recipe but none turned out very well – they either didn’t rise very much or they didn’t have the right texture to…

Peanut Butter Cup Blondies Recipe

I recently found myself on the Green and Blacks website and came across their Peanut Butter and Chocolate Blondies recipe and decided to give it a little twist to include Peanut Butter Cups – and no white chocolate. I added 4 halved Peanut Butter Cups to this recipe but in the end the portion size was huge giving half a Peanut Butter Cup per person. Next time I think I’d…


Sandwich Recipes for National Sandwich Week with Primula

Last week was National Sandwich Week and I think if given half the chance Hubby and I would live off sandwiches. We love them, but not just sandwiches with two slices of bread but bagels, wraps, stuffed pittas and anything else we can find. There’s nothing quite like a sandwich to fill a gap and satisfy a little craving at the same time. Primula have come up with some great sandwich…


Jam Lattice Pastries Recipe

I love baking and have made it my Sunday ritual to bake something, usually with LP’s help. I was sent a Lattice Cutter by Cake Mart’s german team, MeinCupcake, and thought that I’d try and make something using it and these Jammy Lattice Pastries were created! I filled mine with a variety of conserves – Lemon Curd, Raspberry Jam and Duerr’s Rhubarb and Custard Jam. So here’s our Jam Lattice…


Slow Cooker Beef Chilli Recipe

This has to be my all time favourite slow cooker meal. Chilli is such a versatile meal – serve with rice, nachos, in wraps – however you like. It’s great to cook in bulk and freeze and tastes even better once frozen and reheated. So here’s our Slow Cooker Beef Chilli Recipe: Ingredients Spray oil 500 g mince beef 1 onion chopped 2 garlic cloves finely chopped (although I swear by this stuff, I haven’t bought…


Slow Cooker Sausage Tagliatelle Recipe

This is one of our favourite family slow cooker meals. The chilli flakes give it a little spicy kick without being overpowering and the sausages take on all the flavours from the sauce. It freezes well and is great for cooking in bulk. So here’s our Slow Cooker Sausage Tagliatelle Recipe: Ingredients Spray oil 8 sausages 1 tsp chilli flakes 1 onion chopped 150 g mushrooms sliced 2 garlic cloves chopped (although I swear by this stuff, I haven’t bought…


Fruity Banana Cake Recipe

I absolutely love a banana cake and quite like having bananas left looking a little sorry for themselves in the fruit bowl just so I can make a banana cake. This one is light, moist and perfect served with custard or just eaten alongside a cup of tea. So here’s our Fruity Banana Cake Recipe: Ingredients 100 g butter 125 g caster sugar 2 eggs beaten 80 g sultanas 80 g raisins 3 bananas mashed 200 g self raising flour Instructions Preheat the oven…
